I worked at Callaway Golf

Pros

Selling golf clubs for the number 1 brand in golf is a pretty easy close. Benefits and pay are good. I made a lot of friends at the company. If you golf they offer discounts on golf clubs.

Cons

Currently the golf industry is hurting. Golf course shops and retail are struggling to stay open. In 2009 there were a lot of lay offs at Callaway. A couple of years ago management wanted you to succeed and offered growth and advancement opportunties. Now management treats employees like cattle and doesnt bother with career pathing. Also the company has become more micro managed. As far as vacation time, there is none.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should realize the value in customer service and inside sales. Inside sales should have more recognition. Management should offer a better solution to manage vacation time.

    Pros

    - good work life balance
    - golf atmosphere
    - very relaxed work atmosphere
    - good people
    - california casual environment

    Cons

    - if your not a golfer don't expect to be included in offsites
    - its a "big" little company
    - sometimes too relaxed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    its difficult to have a fast paced company emerge in such a relaxed sector. While its nice to push building relationships through golf, its not the only way.
